SIAMS

In addition to OFSTED inspections, as a Church of England school we have a SIAMS (Statutory Inspection  of Anglican and Methodist Schools) inspection.  In April 2016 we were judged to be Good.  Noted strengths include:

  • the clear leadership and vision of the headteacher which has significantly enhanced the Christian distinctiveness of the academy.
  • the growing links with the local church which have strengthened the spiritual development of the pupils.
  • the high quality of the relationships within the academy which underpin all its work.

Key Actions are:

  • highlight the Christian values of the academy more strongly so that pupils are more fully aware of their contribution to the academy’s Christian distinctiveness.
  • involve pupils more in the planning and leading of collective worship in order to develop their spirituality.
  • consider further how religious education (RE) lessons can be planned to ensure pupils are given opportunities to apply their knowledge and skills to their own lives.
